First responders in Christian County will have an opportunity to get vaccinated Friday.
According to a release from the Christian County Presiding Commissioner Ralph Phillips, Alps Pharmacy in Nixa will provide the COVID-19 vaccines for first responders.
Union Hill Church of Christ is working with health officials to provide a space for the vaccine clinic. Organizers will also use this event as an opportunity to do a small-scale test run of plans, which will be expanded for future mass vaccination sites in the coming months.
EMA Director Phil Amtower said, “Our hope is to be able to vaccinate all Christian County First Responders who wish to receive the vaccine. Being able to complete these first priority groups will allow us to move forward toward widespread vaccination opportunities for citizens across the County.”
